A rumor points out that the PlayStation 5 (PS5) will undergo updates in 2023. Sony’s console may get a thinner version with a removable disk reader, Insider Gaming said on Monday (19).
The panel should receive a USB-C port that can be connected to the back to maintain the look. Inside, the hardware remains “almost identical” to those sold today. The update should hit stores in September of next year, said the site, which had access to the information through Sony sources.
The site belongs to respected insider Tom Henderson. He was right to say that Sony would launch a professional Dual Sense controller. Now, sources say that the new console will completely replace the A, B and C chassis that have been in production since 2020, the year the PS5 was released.
In addition, Sony is expected to sell the new console separately, as well as the removable hard drive. “So if it breaks, there’s no need to buy an entirely new console,” the site said.
Everything indicates that the update will enable a portable and easily replaceable console. Which transforms the PS5 into a thinner and lighter device.
“The driver will not ruin the aesthetics of the console and will plug into it without looking external, presumably meaning the new PS5 will look similar to the existing model,” the website reads. It is unclear whether the updated console will have an internal and an external hard drive.
Sony expects to sell 18.5 million units with PS5 updates in 2023. More than the 12 million consoles with chassis A, B or C in the same year.
